The control joint is really there just to control cracks because you know the cracks are gonna come because of the various kinds of movement, and so you just want to have it be done in a way that's gonna control it, put them in a place where you can be careful about how much moisture is gonna be able to get into those cracks but also so that they are visually appealing, so given that, you're gonna end up with many more control joints than you are expansion joints.
